I don't believe this to be accurate.  I've been dabbling in traffic control for a couple of years now, and I've never read so much as a single document outlining that QoS has to be turned on per interface/network card.
Incase I'm wrong; can you cite a reference?
It could be that you do have to enable it per interface for dlink routers that support QoS, I've never used one.
Tomato, or in lieu of that, Debian all the way :)
